Sharing

You can share your sandbox with others in a couple seconds to show off what you've built, gather feedback, or earn referral credits!

To share your sandbox, click the Share button in the top right of the page, or the share icon at the bottom of the left navigation. This will give you a share URL and present you with some options that are covered below.

When someone else follows this URL, they'll get a copy of your sandbox as it currently stands. Your sandbox does not have to be running for this copy to occur. If you follow this share URL, it will redirect you back to your sandbox.

Share URLs, being able to add code, and the ability to set startup scripts allows you to very quickly create a working example of something you'd like to show others. For example, you could quickly create a demo of a Python Flask application by:

  1. Launching a Python sandbox

  2. Adding some Flask code in the editor

  3. Adding pip3 install flask --user to your startup script

  4. Grabbing your share URL and sending it to others

That's all it takes to get started! Read on to learn about more advanced options and other ways of sharing your project.

Options

Allow Write Access

By default, when you share your project, you'll share a copy of it. To allow others to make changes to your project, click the Enable write access checkbox.

Once you've given someone write access to your project, there's no way to revoke it!

Include Referral Token

By including a referral token in your project, you can earn account credits when others sign up using your URL!
